American Minute with Bill Federer

I had to make my own living and my own opportunity … Don’t sit down and wait for the opportunities to come. You have to get up and make them. “If I have accomplished anything in this life it is because I was willing to work hard.” Madam C.J. Walker

SOJOURNER TRUTH was born a slave in New York in 1797, she spoke only Dutch until sold around the age of 9, together with a flock of sheep, for $100.

Suffering hardships, her third master made her marry an older slave with whom she had five children.
